Hands down one of the best games i have ever played if not the best one. So deep and interesting that you'll end up playing it at least a couple of time just to see both sides.

i remember beating this game for the first time during a quiet summer night. It was 2 am and as the credits starting rolling, i stood up and looked out out my window and the sky was a pitch black, but was lit up with a blueish tint. As I sat there, I really put deep though into the crazy adventure of a one of a kind game that i just spent the past month playing. Truly a work of art. Sitting there with the credits rolling in really brought a tear to my eye knowing that great fun adventure, was over, never to know the whereabouts of our characters we bonded over time with. It really gets you thinking.

You hit the nail on the head Act Man! This game is amazing and the way you explain the star wars ideologies is super well done. Now I can better explain to my fiancé why I love the star wars universe so much, especially games like KOTOR. They reflect the real world and make us think about ourselves and our roles in the universe. Stay Frosty, ACT MAN!!! Please do KOTOR 2! :D Not as great, but still a good game and better combat mechanics.

I keep coming back to this to play over my gaming in the background, so kudos on that. I played KotOR 2 first, so after a whole game having characters talk about this badass warrior who changed the face of the galaxy, who disappeared suddenly, the KotOR 1 reveal had me jumping out my seat screaming. I probably should've caught it, but KotOR 2 had so much hearsay and "Only Revan might know" from Kreia that I didn't see it coming. I was so pumped. These two games, even though 2 wasn't properly finished on release, are unquestionably the best Star Wars games ever made. I wish you'd do a "Why KotOR 2 is so underrated" to explore the excellence that is the destruction of the Force's philosophy in the SW universe.

I've been waiting for ages until I finished the game to watch this review and it did not disappoint. That intro was one of the best I've ever seen and that roundup of all the characters was incredibly in depth. This game is probably my 2nd favourite ever behind the witcher 3. In the words of Twi'lek dancer, mucha shaka paka.

If you were into stars as a kid back then and i didn't get it, ouch. You really did miss out. But then again we all have games like that. I never played silent series until 2 years ago. Despite playing a little bit as a kid and being freaked out never picking it up again. Years later realizing it would've been a masterpiece for me.

I wish I had been able to go in completely blind my first time playing it, but unfortunately as late as I was I had the major plot twist spoiled for me long before I had a chance to play it myself. Thanks, internet! That aside though, I love this game. I love the story, I love the characters. I love just about everything about it aside from a few things here and there (some outdated visuals, the controls aren't the greatest, etc).

As much as I love the intro to this video I'll have to disagree with you. This game may be fun at times but there are times when it pisses you off, I think the story is amazing and the characters are great I love how you can romance Bastilla. I was enjoying this game until I got to deck 2 on the star forge, omg it's impossible, once you go past the first door you swarmed by endless waves of dark jedi and sith troopers, who in the right mind thought it was okay for players to go through that? Don't get me wrong I have completed this game before on dark side ending and this time I want light side ending but without your dark powers it's really difficult. I don't know why people say kotor 2 sucks compared to kotor 1. Kotor 2 is better than kotor 1, there are more powers, more levels and you get more feats to upgrade when you level up, kotor 2 is actually challenging compared to kotor 1, it's more fair and the enemies are toned down giving you the player the chance to fight against enemies, and stun bullshit evertime you go up against a dark jedi. In kotor 1 if you don't upgrade your wisdom and intelligence enough you will spamed with endless stun/fear etc etc, kotor 1 is a great game and I love it but I hate it at the same time.

Dumbest gaming decision of all time: making Star Wars: The Old Republic instead of the sequel to KOTOR2 that fans wanted. Literally left hundreds of millions of bucks on the table and the CEO who made the decision should be beaten with a hammer until he's dead.

This is painful. The same story that gave us KoTOR also gave us Battlefront 2 and its infamous lootboxes. Adding to the pain, the same company that brought us KoTOR also gave us Mass Effect: Andromeda and Anthem. THIS is why the entertainment industry is dying. There are only 2 modern games (say, from the past 5 years or so) that I have and play regularly (ME3 and Andromeda don't count). Pokemon and Civ 6. And I don't have Sword &Shield, and you can't screw up a civ game (unless it's deliberate). I've been a fan of Bioware since Baldur's Gate. And Jade Empire was a game that needs a sequel. And sorry, but Baldur's Gate 2 was much better than KoTOR. To sum up how KoTOR (and KoTOR 2) works, it's basically D&D in Star Wars. It's Neverwinter Nights in space.

Story wise yeah this game is really good but game play OMFG its so fkn bad and like its trying to be turn base and live action at the same time while failing at both and the leveling is so fucking stupid have to use mods just to fix that stupid shit. Companions are kinda annoying and useless and it was obvious as hell that you were revan the whole time don't have to be a detective to figure that simple shit out so the ''twist'' of being revan was meh @ best and for KOTOR 2 its the same shit but the story is ass . Both games were trash and a waste of time thought it would get better the more I played through but nope
